Is the Thai-Chinese railway a raw deal?

 

Is the Thai-Chinese railway a raw deal?

Despite repeated assurances to the contrary from the government of Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha,

the planned Thai-Chinese high-speed rail continues to attract scepticism. The government's explanation does not add up.

Instead, it exposes the weaknesses and ill-effects of using unchecked power under Section 44 of the coup-sanctioned interim constitution,

which is somehow allowed under the 2017 charter. In the longer term, the Thai-Chinese railway may end up being a raw deal for Thailand,

and many Thais may not look back favourably toward China for it.
